hostapd works for me with cvs 07-12-2004 with freeradus asexternal
authentication! .config defines only which support is build in hostapd.
You can set CONFIG_EAP=y without using internal authenticator.
hostapd.conf defines use of internal or external authenticator. My
.config looks like (i use freeradius as authenticator):

CONFIG_DRIVER_HOSTAP=y
CONFIG_IAPP=y
CONFIG_RSN_PREAUTH=y
CONFIG_EAP=y
CONFIG_EAP_MD5=y
CONFIG_EAP_TLS=y

Its true. At the moment hostapd needs wpa_supplicant directory. It
changed from last release. In old release some code was twice.

I hope i could help
